The Mentawai, a tribe of some 64,000 people, live on the islands in West Sumatra, Indonesia. Mohammed Saleh Bin Dollah is a talented 42-year-old photographer from Kelantan, Malaysia. He visited the tribe in July 2014 to document their unique way of life and returned with a selection of incredible images. The Mentawai people, a native population in Indonesia, are famous for their decorative tattoos and for living a semi-nomadic life on the Mentawai Islands in West Sumatra.
“They all live completely in land and secluded from the modern world. The woman walk around with no clothes on and their lives depend entirely on natural resources. I wanted to go to the island to showcase the everyday lives of the tribe.”
